Unfortunately, criminality does not stop at borders. The Meuse-Rhine regions between Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands set up a delinquency observatory to combat cross-border crime, with a particular focus on drug-related problems.

The EMROD project brought together different professionals in charge of preventing and fighting crime, including police, justice, preventive services and
administrative authorities. They took a scientific approach, pooling evidence and exchanging best practices to inform common policies on cross-border problems such as cannabis and burglary.

They also ran a large-scale survey on citizens’ sense of security and a public information centre.
